    I am honestly at a loss as to what there could possibly be to discuss about squeezable tubes
    New kinds of plastic?

    optimal shapes for squeezing?

    I just don't know

    obviously you are not an industry insider

    tube con 2010

    i enter the convention hall, feeling eyes on me like flies drawn to rotting meat. tube con is reportedly about product tubes for toothpaste, ketchup, shampoo; you can find all here. but it's truly a gallery of the slow degradation of the american man, a circus freakshow line-up of shrunken manicured hands, glistening combovers, and tucked-in buttondown shirts with gaudy patterns drawn over them like a toddler's first fumbled attempt with a washable marker

    it's people like him and opinions like that which causes society to still be so blindly invested in jars when they don't understand the joy and convenience of tubed goods

    the broken dreams of a thousand middle americans are strewn across the tables of each booth in the form of a wide and brilliantly colored variety of tubes. i stared at a display rack of anodized blue aluminum epoxy tubes and all i could see were the tassels of future university graduates who found themselves with a pregnant girlfriend out of high school.

    Metal Tube Advantages

    The metal tube is air tight and impermeable and has "no suckback." These properties give superior protection to contents, keeping them fresh and uncontaminated through long periods of intermittent use. Internal linings applied to the metal give it added compatibility for products that are highly alkaline or acidic. The metal tube is the only one of the three tube types that is seamless.

    Plastic Tube Advantages

    Plastic tubes are lightweight, leak-proof, durable, and nonbreakable. They are used for products like hand creams, shampoos, and various other cosmetics and toiletries, such as cleansing creams, facial masks, and tanning lotions. They are also used for food, pharmaceuticals, household, and industrial products. The plastic tube has a memory -- it goes back to its original shape after squeezing. It maintains its attractiveness throughout the life of the contents and the tube remains smooth after squeezing.

    Laminate Tube Advantages

    Laminated squeeze tubes offer a form of tube material with the advantages of plastic but with barrier properties close to those of metal. Laminated tubes have a good "feel" and maintain their attractiveness throughout the life of their contents. The first laminated tubes were used primarily to package high-volume products like toothpaste, but now are used for many other products ranging from denture adhesives and artists' paints to hair-care products and pharmaceuticals. A subset of laminate is Polyfoil.

    Metal, plastic or laminate, the tube is efficient and attractive.

    The tube, the perfect container, has become an essential part of our daily life.


    Suckback is just the worst.
